Movement Competency

Movement competency describes an individual’s ability to perform a coordinated movement pattern, through a full range of motion in the absence of pain or discomfort, with correct posture, joint alignment and muscle coordination.
Suboptimal movement patterns can indicate muscle imbalances and restrictions at a joint. Understanding movement patterns and how the ankle, knee, shoulder joints along with the lumbar and thoracic spine function both independently and synergistically is a useful tool to any exercise professional.

Following this workshop will allow attendees to understand and correct movement patterns by using fundamental squat, push and pull exercises as screening tools.
